Join Stick Cat and his incomparable sidekick Edith on another dangerous, epic, and hilarious rescue mission in Tom Watson’s Stick Cat: Cats in the City!
With over-the-top fun and humor, this scrumptious story features Tom Watson’s trademark laughs, adventure, and hilarious stick-figure drawings, perfect for fans of the Stick Dog, Big Nate, and Diary of a Wimpy Kid books.
Stick Cat is going somewhere he’s never been before—his best friend Edith’s apartment. It’s got everything: donut crumbs in the sink, a fire escape, and a window with a great view of the big city. While admiring the view, Stick Cat sees trouble. Hazel, the bagel maker, is in serious danger in the building across the alley. Stick Cat will use his smarts—and Edith’s appetite—to devise a rescue plan. But can Hazel hang on long enough for this dynamic duo to save her?
I really enjoy the Stick Dog and Stick Cat book series by Tom Watson. Big Sis at 8 absolutely LOVES these books and this newest one went right into her backpack for reading while at school because she was so excited. Even Lil Sis at 5 who normally doesn’t like chapter books yet will enjoy having this series read to her. This latest adventure has the cats heading out of their apartments and into the city! Like the title suggests all the illustrations scattered throughout the book are of a stick figure cat. That is because a boy is writing these stories as if on notebook paper to impress a girl in his class that likes cats. The story is funny and it is enjoyable to think cats get into these situations when their owners are away. Stick Cat: Cats in the City is part of a fabulous series that we can’t get enough of!
